  • A few years ago I traveled throughout Europe and took more than 5000 photos. Well fewer than 300 of them were at focal lengths longer than 300mm. Had I not taken those pictures at long focal...

  • Replied in D-Lux 7
    Serious question then:  As a fairly long-term Panasonic MFT shooter (among other formats) who was interested in the LX100 Mk II but was put off by the alleged problem of dust accumulating on the ...
  • Replied in D-Lux 7
    A number of people who owned the Pany LX100 Mk I camera claim to have had problems with dust getting onto the sensor, possibly drawn into the camera as the lens zoomed out or retracted.  Did the ...
  • And you got to stay at one of the nicest hotels on Kauai, the Grand Hyatt. Well, it's hard work, but someone's got to do it. Oh wait, that was Jeff!

  • @BlueBomberTurbo.

    You do know the AF of Nikon's DSLR Live View uses Contrast Detect, not Phase Detect? Nikon apparently decided in the new Z cameras to emphasize the accuracy of CDAF over the...

  • You appear to have missed the main point of this brief DPR preview, which is NOT that the AF system of Nikon Z camera fails to match the offerings of Sony or anyone else, but rather it fails to...

  • He started with a Miranda camera.  That was my very first film camera.  I still have it.
  • Apparently you didn't get the memo from the ACLU, which takes a different — and I am sure much more lawyerly and legally reliable — position  when it comes to photography in public places.  From ...
  • Of the ones I checked, the pictures you say are not in focus were shot wide open and the depth of field on them is extremely shallow. Consequently, the eyes may be in focus even if the nose of the...

  • Replied in Too old?
    @boxerman: You are absolutely correct about flying international business class.  If one can afford it, do it!  My wife and I always fly business class because it makes the first couple of days of ...

  • Absolutely gorgeous shots, and thank you for the detailed commentary about your gear and setup, which I found extremely helpful. One thing I'm curious to know is whether you encountered any issues ...
  • I recommend that you go back and review the video clip, as I did after I read your post since I didn't recall him saying what you claimed he did.  What he appears to say is that Olympus doesn't ...
  • The lens of the Sony RX10 iv is quite amazing, on a par with some of my favorite Nikon DSLR and Sony ILC lenses.  The RX10 iv is the Swiss army knife of fixed lens cameras.  It is often a good ...
  • Replied in Tripod?
    You caught me!  I was being modest.  LOL.  My technique is actually pretty good and I'm perhaps even steadier now than when I shot film.  Old guys rock!
  • Replied in Tripod?
    Thom Hogan has discussed this very point a number of times on his blog.  He also recommends that you turn off VR if you are shooting handheld with a shutter speed faster than around 1/1000 s or ...
  • The DL fixed lens cameras offered a range of choices. On one day you could  take one pair of them to suit your photographic needs for the day, the next day a different pair of them for a different ...
  • So many of us do precisely this:  we buy ILCs and then go out in the field with multiple cameras, each one having a different lens.  We treat our ILCs like cameras with fixed lenses.  This is what ...
  • And last month Canon, the leader in the industry, officially discontinued its last film camera, the EOS IV.   How long do you think it will be before Nikon stops making the F6?  How many of such ...
